Swiss Dance Awards


The Special Dance Award recognises an outstanding contribution to dance in areas such as mediation, documentation and cultural policy. One outstanding male and one outstanding female dancer are also honoured every two years. All the prizes are awarded on the direct recommendation of the Federal Dance Jury.

 

The award winners for current dance works are chosen in the Swiss Dance Competition. The Federal Dance Jury selects them from among the submitted works for the two last seasons. The biennial June Johnson Dance Prize, which is organised in association with the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation, is also an open competition. It is aimed at young, up-and-coming artists.
